Second Mrs. Giaconda

by E. L. Konigsburg
Publisher: Aladdin Paperbacks
Mass market paperback, 146 pages
Price: $6.99
Used Price: $3.50 (4 in stock) Condition Policy
  • The greatest artist of his time
  • An apprentice with a larcenous heart and an aversion to the truth
  • A young duchess whose plain face belies her beautiful soul

Could the complex ways these three lives intertwine hold the key to a historical riddle as enigmatic as the Mona Lisa's smile—why Leonardo da Vinci devoted three years to a painting of the second wife of an unimportant merchant when all the nobles of Europe were begging for a portrait by his hand?

Only a master storyteller like E. L. Konigsburg could create such an intriguing answer to the puzzle behind the most famous painting of all time.
